When Trials Blow Our Way ~

When Trials Blow Our Way ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When trials blow our way,
on the winds of stress
when we start to feel
tense and hard pressed.

That’s when we need to go,
to the One who’ll ease
the whirlwind we are in
into a tranquil breeze.

When adversity slams,
on the door of our trust
when anxiety’s clamor
starts to overwhelm us.

That’s when we need to go,
to the Savior of our soul
and give to Him our fears
so He can take control.

When trials blow our way,
as worry slams about
that’s when we need Jesus . . .
to chart for us new a route!

Matthew 8:26

“And he saith unto them,
Why are ye fearful, O ye
of little faith? Then he
arose, and rebuked the
winds and the sea;
and there was a great calm.”

Trials All Around ~

The testing of Your faith used with permission Doorpost Verses

Trials, trials are all around,
don’t know when they’ll come
but, we can be sure of this . . .
there’ll be more than just some.

Trials, here and everywhere,
arrive in all sizes and shapes
don’t matter if big or small
from them there’s no escape.

Trials, early in the morning,
testings through the afternoon
tribulations in the evening
anytime is ripe and opportune.

Trials, putting us to the test,
trying our faith in every way
hardship, suffering, adversity
looming over us every day.

Trials, trials are all around,
they’re coming for each of us
but, with Jesus and determination
they cannot destroy our trust!

~~~~~~~~~~

James 1:2-3

My brethren, count it all joy
when ye fall into divers temptations;
Knowing this, that the trying
of your faith worketh patience.

My Faith Has Taken Me ~

Bridge by Forrest Cavale free photo #4172

My faith has taken me,
across the bridge of deep sorrow
I know it will lead me . . .
through the crossroads of tomorrow.

My faith has taken me,
through life’s troubling sea
I know it will guide me . . .
when another comes for me.

My faith has taken me,
into the darkest, lowest valley
I know it will direct me . . .
when another I have to rally.

My faith has taken me,
into the pit of grief’s despair
I know it will not leave me . . .
when another has me there.

My faith has taken me,
across spans of adversity
but, over them all I held on . . .
to the hope of eternity!

 which strengtheneth me.”

When All is Peaceful ~

ARMOR

When all is at peace,
when your soul is still . . .
when joy and happiness
is all that you feel.

That is the time,
to prepare for war . . .
for, Satan will surely bring
adversity to your door.

When all is peaceful,
when all is calm and serene
wearing your armor . . .
must still be a daily routine.

For, you don’t know when,
the battle will begin or start
you need to be prepared . . .
lest an arrow, hits your heart.

Discouragement and despair,
are Satan’s favorite targets
your peace and your calm
he’ll gladly add to the harvest.

So, when ever you are feeling,
peaceful and at rest . . .
make sure you are ready
and in your armor dressed!

~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:11

“Put on the whole armour of God,
that ye may be able to stand against
the wiles of the devil.”

Go To God ~

God is Faithfull  by Nathan Vanhorn CreationSwap

When facing adversity,
when problems are all about
don’t try on your own
to figure them all out.

Don’t worry over them,
or guess at what to do
don’t come up with a scheme
or reason your way through

Instead ~ go to God,
trust Him with your cares
believing He will answer
the desires of your prayers.

Then walk out in faith,
and see where He will lead
sing to Him your praises
till He satisfies your need!

Psalm 9:10
King James Version

“And they that know thy name
will put their trust in thee:
for thou, Lord, hast not
forsaken them that seek thee.”

Talk to Me Lord ~

Talk to Me God ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Talk to me Lord, talk to me,
for my world’s shaking apart
and the winds of adversity
are blowing thru my heart.

Talk to me Lord, talk to me,
tell me the way I should go
speak to me thru Your Spirit
so Your path I may know.

Talk to me Lord, talk to me,
we need to make a connection
for I am counting on You
to lead me in the right direction.

Talk to me Lord, talk to me,
walk with me along the way
tell me to go right or left
I need Your guidance today.

Talk to me Lord, talk to me,
whisper Your love in my ear
reassure and remind me
Your strength is always near.

Talk to me Lord, talk to me,
let not pride keep us apart
be that still small voice . . .
speaking to my fearful heart!

1 Kings 19:12
King James Version

“And after the earthquake a fire;
but the Lord was not in the fire:
and after the fire a still small voice.”
